World IP Day 2017 - 26th April
The Anti-Counterfeiting Group (ACG) will be celebrating World IP Day on Wednesday 26 April by attending an intellectual property (IP) event at the Home Office in London. This training day will highlight the importance of IP rights, what they are and why they matter.
Home Office staff and senior officials will be encouraged to visit the ACG stand to examine genuine and fake products, and better understand how these poor quality counterfeit products are exposing consumers to real danger.
What is World IP Day?
Every 26 April the EUIPO coordinate World Intellectual Property Day. Its aim is to raise awareness of how patents, copyright, trademarks and designs impact on daily life. How innovation makes our lives healthier, safer, and more comfortable and turns problems into progress.
World Anti-Counterfeiting Day 2017 - 7 June
World Anti-Counterfeiting Day - 7th June 2017 - is now in its nineteenth year and was established by the GACG Network members to enable the organisation of local, national and regional events under the umbrella of an international campaign which could focus on the particular problems of counterfeiting and piracy in the countries or regions involved. The WAC Day events are usually held on the same day in summer each year but are individually organised by the national or regional associations themselves who may or may not take up themes suggested by the GACG or being used by other associations.

Intellectual Property is hugely important to the UK economy whether in the creative industries, branded goods or the manufacturing and design sectors. IP rich industries are driving the economy and are the bedrock of modern, knowledge driven economies such as the UK, and British IP Day has proven to be a fantastic way to celebrate this success.
